Overall Teachers Cup for the 10th Consecutive Year
We couldn't be prouder of our four selected girls who went to Paris earlier in November to compete in the Young America Grand Prix Competition. Not only did these girls rise to the challenge they performed and represented the school with such professionalism.
They had the chance to take class in the world famous Paris Opera Ballet School which only opens their doors to this competition what an experience!!!
The girls not only danced Classical Solo's from famous classical repertoire they also showed their versatility in performing specially arranged contemporary solo's devised by Gregory Apostilidis and had the most amazing time being coached by him.
The marks and comments from the highly acclaimed judges were amazing and in their classical solos as high as 92 out of 100 with lovely encouraging comments.
